Fatal Truck Accident Statistics For 2010

According to this research, of all persons killed in truck accidents during this period, an astounding 97 percent were occupants in cars and other passenger vehicles as opposed to the drivers and occupants in the much larger and heavier trucks.

Some truck accidents are merely caused by erratic weather or road conditions, but in other cases inattentive and negligent driving place the motorists at risk. Some of the common causes of truck accidents and truck collisions are as follows:
- Driver under influence (DUI) of intoxicating substances, including alcohol and drugs
- Driving While Impaired (DWI)
- Driver fatigue
- Reckless Driving
- Road rage
- Lapse of concentration
- Failure to supervise drivers
- Untrained drivers and undertrained drivers
One frequent cause is truck drivers ignoring regulations and procedures regarding the number of continuous hours they are supposed to drive, which leads to fatigue, falling asleep and serious injuries and sometimes even deaths with wrongful death claims. To counter fatigue, some truck drivers take OTC substances and medications in order to stay awake. Sometimes they work, sometimes they injure the health of the driver, and sometimes they are NOT sufficient and bad collisions with serious injuries and/or deaths result.Help with Truck Accident Injuries, Wrongful Death Claims and Property Damage Claims
